After one year, Iranian Internet users could return again to have a Yahoo email account. In September 2013, Yahoo  email system has decided to add the request of mobile phone number to the all new users, in order to register for an email account. Due to International sanctions, Iran, Syria, Libya, Cuba, Myanmar were not included in the dropdown menu for the countries code. This exclusion provoked the reaction of the Iranian human rights activists, who denounced the tragically effect of this decision on the Iranian youth capability to communicate out of the regime control.  In that time, we need to remember, Yahoo was very popular in Iran and 63% of its netizens used it as their primary email service. This positive change of the American multinational Internet corporation , it’s probably also the direct effect of the worldwide protests against Yahoo.
